Academic Team

Today’s world is facing huge challenges and deep transformations: global warming, shifts in global powers, resources & biodiversity depletion, rising inequalities, digital and technological disruptions, etc.

Such a context calls for radical changes to build more inclusive, low-carbon and sustainable economies.

We believe that addressing these challenges will make organizations more creative ; we now have the opportunity to invent new lifestyles to reshape our cities, our working environments, and to develop new paths for our economies.

With a broad multidisciplinary approach to understand the complex challenges and forces that are shaping our world, and a unique combination of theory and practice, the HEC MSc Sustainability and Social Innovation is an intensive program that enables students to customize their curriculum and build their leadership.

Our ambition is to empower our students to become changemakers, with the knowledge and skills to lead these necessary transformations.

We are proud of our students and Alumni, who, in the diversity of their nationalities, backgrounds and experiences, share and demonstrate the same passion to explore future business frontiers.
